Interesting...where did you get this information from?

It would be good if the diet is supplimented with spirulina algae.The brand I use is OSI Spirulina flakes.

sorry to change the subject, but ive got a deifferent question about clownfish. How do your clowns sleep at night? i have had a false perc for almost a week now and ive noticed that at night he almost lays completely on his side at the very top, almost like hes dead. he does fine during the day i was just wondering if anyone elsa's clowns do this.

My WC true perc sleeps the same way. Hosts the side of my baffle. I thought he had some sort of swim bladder problem one day when he looked like he couldn't get off of the surface. Turns out he was just goofing on me, trying to get me to post stupid questions, lol! It worked. The night after I posted my concern he was swimming like a champ. Always returns to the surface to rest though. Weird little fish, IMO.

I thought that one of my clowns may have had a swim bladder probelm and they suggested feeding peas to my clowns. They love them! (my mom thinks its funny that my fish eat more peas than me!) Might be a nice treat for them every so often.

Are these cooked peas? I've never heard of this before. Who suggested this?

I've been feeding thawed frozen peas (I dont' do it often- maybe a few times a month). You remove the other shell of the pea and then mash it up to fit into the litttle clown's mouth.

Steve-S recommended this to me, read the link below....

Peas are pretty much the best thing when there is this kind of problem. It doesn't need to be every other day but you won't hurt the fish at all feeding the peas. They are very high in vitamins and usuable protein. No matter the species, it's always good to be sure the fish gets a well rounded diet. If you where to make your own blender mush and incorporate a good marine vitamin and nori or other source of spurlina algae, it might be a little less mess than preparing the peas.

Interesting. So did the peas solve the swimming bladder issue?

Mine will eat just about anything. Marine Cuisine, live brine, dried brine, blood worm, pellet, flakes, algae pellet. But the don't seem to like Nori.

Mine love marine cuisine. They eat it right from my hand. They also eat off the LR. Once in awhile I drop in some spirulina algae for them. But I've never been able to get them to eat anything green.

I have a Clarki and Maroon, and they both eat nori from the tang's seaweed clip.
